READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Judith N.

Forget the traditional hot dog bun and give this a try. Can be done on the grill or baked in the oven.

The recipe worked out very well (oven version) although in the end, it tasted a lot like hot dogs in crispy hot dog buns. Don't be afraid to jazz up the mix as Terri mentioned by adding seasonings, Parmesan, garlic powder or just about anything else. Also, the ratios were a little off as well. I went with 10 franks, 3 cups Bisquick, 2 cups water and I was able to get about 1/4" of cooked dough for each frank. Next time, I might wrap each hot dog with a slice of cheese before adding dough for fun.
